DreamHack Montreal 2017 Overwatch champions EnVision Esports has rebuilt its Overwatch roster for the 2018 season.
EnVision’s new roster will make their debut at the Overwatch BEAT Invitational scheduled to start on Feb. 4. They’ll take on Philadelphia Fusion’s academy team, Fusion University, as well as Kungarna, OWLMP, LCG Overwatch, and The Savages. Two more teams are expected to be revealed before the start of the tournament.
The new EnVision roster, led by flex-tank and team captain Caleb “McGravy” McGarvy will also compete in this year’s Overwatch Contenders tournament. EnVision has also signed main tank Bryan “iShiny” McCarthy, DPS players Jason “Jaru” White and Casey “buds” McIlwaine, and supports Anthony “Fire” King and William “Crimzo” Hernandez.
EnVision is looking to impress in the Overwatch Contenders North American tournament with the goal of landing a slot in the second season of the Overwatch League, EnVision owner Artur Minacov said in a statement.
The North American organization acquired its Overwatch Contenders season one slot after Team Liquid abandoned their position in the tournament. The team failed to qualify on their own, but surprised viewers when they impressed in the tournament, ultimately taking third place. EnVision earned a spot in the APAC Premier from that placing, but failed to move out of group stage, losing to Flash Wolves, MVP Space, and Vici Gaming.
